Santa Barbara, CA landscape artist Nicole Strasburg says of her original painting, "This work was created after spending a year studying the local watershed and the Santa Ynez River, Santa Barbara's water source. The South side of Cachuma Lake hosts a recreational park where there is camping and hiking. The North side is privately owned with few human inhabitants. The animals roam freely in their habitat with little concern for those of us floating on the lake admiring them. These are the local mule deer enjoying the shade of the fall reeds." Unframed, oil paint on a cradled birch panel, with hanging wire. Made in USA. Exclusive. 30" sq.
